"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Personal Notes:
If you don’t want to use bacon or its grease, get a small jar of Better Than Bouillon (chicken, beef and vegetable flavor) at Walmart ($3) and use 1 tsp with 1 cup of water to replace chicken/beef stock. You can also use a bouillon cube if you can’t find Better Than Bouillon.
